Custom Engagement Rings


An Asscher-cut diamond set with two calf-head diamonds in a hand-crafted platinum ring. The tradition of giving an engagement ring began in the Middle Ages.  It was decided that there should be a waiting period between the betrothal and the wedding,  hence the engagement ring became a symbol and promise of the future marriage.

The early engagement rings were custom designed and hand crafted.  At Bijoux Extraordinaire,  we continue this tradition by helping couples create beautiful, personal rings that capture their passion,  commitment and taste. Platinum ring with three ideal cut diamonds.
